    I just need some affection so bad, and to experience touch. I'm pretty much undatable but I know I could get a f*** buddy pretty easily.

    What should I do?

    Why do you think you're "undatable"?

    Also, FWB can get complicated so it's not as easy as it sounds.

    I'm not pretty enough for anyone to want to date me and I'm older than all the guys I'm surrounded by.

    ^I'm not sure I believe that.

    Age shouldn't be an issue. You should just look for ways to get to know people who are your own age

    If that's what you want, then pursue it. Just don't mislead any body and make your intentions/attitudes clear.

    But I'm a 3rd year undergrad so I'm 5-6 years older than the guys I'm surrounded by. And I feel most guys my age would not want to date a student.

    I want a boyfriend but I think I'm only good enough for sex. I just want to be held tbh.

    I have a suspicion that a lot of people would be happier if there were less focus on relationships and more focus on FWB instead!:ninja:
    So my answer would be yes, OP, if that's what you think you would like.

    If all you want is affection, do not make a full commitment to someone.

    I want other things too but mostly I just need to feel something real.

    FWB is perhaps not the way then. Tried dating apps, OP?

    Awww

    Please don't think that about yourself. I don't think for one minute that you're not dateable. Don't sell yourself short or let yourself be used. I'm your age and would date a student without a second thought.

    If I could reach over and give you a hug I would! Hope you get what you want

    What makes you think you're undateable?

    Don't put yourself down like that :hugs:
